They say the show must go on and the Razzies
embraced that mantra. Sorry, “Cats.”
Last year’s maligned movie musical adaptation took home six honors at the 40th annual Razzie Awards, which were announced Monday. “Cats” snagged worst picture, worst screenplay, worst supporting actor (James Corden), worst supporting actress (Rebel Wilson), worst screen combo (“any two half-feline/half-human hairballs”) and worst director (Tom Hooper).
The Razzies were expected to be handed out last Saturday night at Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre but the event was canceled because of coronavirus.
“Rambo: Last Blood” won for worst remake, ripoff or sequel and worst reckless disregard for human life and public property.
John Travolta was named worst actor for two forgettable projects, “The Fanatic” and “Trading Paint,” and worst actress went to Hilary Duff for “The Haunting of Sharon Tate.”
A bit of goodness for Eddie Murphy, though: After being ignored last awards season for his Netflix comeback “Dolemite Is My Name,” the comedian won the Razzie Redeemer award that annually goes to former Razzie winners who’ve gone on to do better work.
